Typically I’m the one suggesting credit cards to family members, but today my dad called me and mentioned that he “upgraded” to the Chase TravelPlus Visa card, which he got an offer for in the mail. He already has a Chase card he hasn’t used in years, so it simply required a call to an automated system to “upgrade.” He read me the details of the offer, and he’d basically earn 10,000 bonus miles after the first purchase (between Feb. 1 and Mar. 31), and 25,000 more bonus miles for spending $10,000 between Feb. 1 and Jul. 31.
The spend part isn’t an issue (he can put a lot of business expenses on the card), but of course he’s trying to get the best mileage bang for the buck. By my math he’d be earning at least 45,000 miles (possibly more since some purchases earn two miles per $1) for $10,000 in spend, which seems like a good deal as such.
My question seems embarrassingly simple — where the heck can a redemption chart for these “miles” be found? I’ve done searches all over the web, and all I could find was outdated information. The Chase website doesn’t seem very helpful, or maybe I’m just looking in the wrong places.
Any ideas? Anyone use this card?
